Come Thou Long-Expected Jesus

These lyrics are sung to many tunes, but this is the carol we have sung nightly throughout Advent for years. The older boys grew up on it.  The three younger ones did not encounter the custom until they were teenagers and never quite embraced it, nor the short liturgy of the season. I did the liturgy alone this year, one night when my wife was not home.  I heard their voices around the table, even though they weren't there.  The people walking in darkness have seen a great light...
